    I was wondering..have you ever drained the tank from condensation?

    Home Depot, Lowe's, Harbor Freight, all sell a water trap you can install.

        Just go to HD, Lowe's, Ace Hardware, Tractor Supply, NAPA, Sears, Harbor Freight, etc. where they have the pneumatic tools. Look for a water separator. Preferably one with 3/8 NPT ports. Brand doesn't matter, they're all about the same.

          Make sure that you drain those tanks every day, after use. Moisture build-up in those tanks can and will cause premature corrosion.

          I'm surprised you've accumulated that much condensation, unless you've put a lot of hours on it, especially in a humid conditions. During the warmer months, there is more humidity and attention to condensate drainage is important. (The colder the air, the less ability it has to hold moisture, so winter conditions pose less of a problem. Either way, as the air is compresse, much of the moisture will drop out in the form of condensation, which can build up in the tank.)

          If you are using your air tools a lot, you should check whatever moisture trap you add, often.

          I hope this helps,
